What is necessary to get this camera to be able to send images to the computer and be able to manipulate photo images and send images to to web sites/individuals/whatever?
I couldn't find this information in it's review here.

I'd use digiKam. I don't use Suse. But, it should be in the software repositories so you can grab it with yum.

You can see some of it's available features here:

digiKam makes use of gPhoto2, and the latest versions support PTP mode with the Powershot S5 IS.

P.S.

Picasa for Linux also makes use of the gPhoto2 libraries (since wine uses them). You'll probably find a lot of linux image editors that use these same libraries (currently supporting over 900 cameras).

You could also use most card readers (since those are usually usb mass storage compliant devices and recognized by most Linux distros).

I spend most of my time in Linux, keeping my desktop setup to run XP Pro, SimplyMEPIS 7.0 and one or two more Linux Distros, like the new communiity developed Digital Photography Edition of PCLinuxOS (scroll down and you'll see an English description). You'll find a pretty wide variety of software for image editing available for Linux now.

Most of the software you'll see shown the screen captures at that last link should also be in the Suse software repositories (except for a couple of the raw conversion tools that you'll need to download from their authors). So, you should be able to install most of them using yum if you prefer Suse.
